BS-006 Short Circuit Test system allows for testing rechargeable batteries & packs under a large current draw up to 1000A. This test system consists of two units: 1) a power control unit with high current switch and 2) explosion proof chamber for meeting the UN38.3 standard. A remote control is included to allow the user to safely perform the short circuit test up to 7 meters away.

Some of the product features include:

  • High current contactors made of copper for low resistance and fast response
  • Long range wireless remote control
  • Voltmeter with 0-100V range and ±0.2% rdg ± 1digit display accuracy
  • Ammeter with 0-1000A or 0-500A DC selectable range and ±0.2% rdg ± 1digit display accuracy
